Stories of our community involvement
The Bridge Youth & Family Services Society is hosting a community event Dec 8, 12 - 1pm: Community Hotseat With Mayor Basran https://dosomegood.ca/event/1952
We were honored that local mom, Kimberly Christianson, allowed us to reflect her and her daughter’s experience. We think her story is quite powerful and we hope that you will share the message with your family, friends and contacts - we urgently need a Youth Recovery House in the Okanagan and with your help we can build this house together.

We got our FREE Naloxone kit from the Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacy and you should too 🤷 !⁣

You know the statistics, you've seen the numbers. We keep sweeping a horrific crisis under the rug, we're ashamed to talk about it, spend money on it, acknowledge it.⁣

But in doing so, we're losing people. We're losing our friends, family members, community members and inspirations to drug-related deaths.⁣

We're forgetting that those statistics are far closer to home than we realize. Those numbers are our people, our community.⁣

And we're tired of not talking about it. So on #IOAD2020 join us in remembering the brave and beautiful lives lost 💜 and those still fighting to make a difference ✨🖤⁣

#IOAD2020 or International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held on 31 August each year that aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of drug-related death.

We asked: What Makes You An Ally?⁣

Here were a few responses...⁣

👥🗣️ "To me, being an #ALLY is standing up for your friends/family when they can't. But also stepping back and letting their voices be heard."⁣

👭👬 "Being an #ALLY means using my privilege to advocate for marginalized groups."⁣

🙆🙆‍♂️"Being an #ALLY means creating an inclusive community where all are welcome, heard, and seen."⁣

🏡👫"Being an #ALLY is being a safe place for everyone. We work hard to make our home safe for anyone."⁣
